Thomas Paine Quote: “It is the direction and not the magnitude which is to be taken into consideration.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The Bible is a book that has been read more and examined less than any book that ever existed.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The accumulation of great wealth is, in many instances, the effect of paying too little for the labor that produced it, the consequence of which is that the working people perish in old age and the employer abounds in affluence.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “EVERY national church or religion has established itself by pretending some special mission from God, communicated to certain individuals. The Jews have their Moses; the Christians their Jesus Christ, their apostles and saints; and the Turks their Mahomet; as if the way to God was not open to every man alike.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “No nation ought to be without a debt. A national debt is a national bond; and when it bears no interest, is in no case a grievance.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The state of a king shuts him from the world, yet the business of a king requires him to know it thoroughly...”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Now, which am I to believe, a book that any impostor might make and call the Word of God, or the creation itself which none but an Almighty Power could make? For the Bible says one thing; and the creation says the contrary. The Bible represents God with all the passions of a mortal, and the creation proclaims him with all the attributes of a God.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Those who knew Benjamin Franklin will recollect that his mind was forever young, his temper ever serene; science, that never grows gray, was always his mistress. He was never without an object, for when we cease to have an object, we become like an invalid in a hospital waiting for death.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Ignorance is of a peculiar nature; once dispelled, it is impossible to reestablish it. It is not originally a thing of itself, but is only the absence of knowledge; and though man may be kept ignorant, he cannot be made ignorant.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Yet this is trash that the Church imposes upon the world as the Word of God; this is the collection of lies and contradictions called the Holy Bible! This is the rubbish called Revealed Religion!”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The story of the whale swallowing Jonah, though a whale is large enough to do it, borders greatly on the marvelous; but it would have approached nearer to the idea of a miracle if Jonah had swallowed the whale.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Priests and conjurors are of the same trade.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Of all the tyrannies that effect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst; every other species of tyranny is limited to the world we live in; but this attempts to stride beyond the grave, and seeks to pursue us into eternity.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “What at first was plunder assumed the softer name of revenue.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “It is easy to see that when republican virtue fails, slavery ensues.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Compassion, the fairest associate of the heart.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “When an objection cannot be made formidable, there is some policy in trying to make it frightful; and to substitute the yell and the war-whoop, in the place of reason, argument and good order.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Ye that dare oppose, not only tyranny, but the tyrant, stand forth!”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Toleration is not the opposite of intoleration, but it is the counterfeit of it. Both are despotisms. The one assumes to itself the right of withholding liberty of conscience, and the other of granting it. The one is the pope, armed with fire and fagot, and the other is the pope selling or granting indulgences.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Arms, like laws, discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe and preserve order...”
Thomas Paine Quote: “I do not believe that any two men, on what are called doctrinal points, think alike who think at all. It is only those who have not thought that appear to agree.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “All the religions known in the world are founded, so far as they relate to man or the unity of man, as being all of one degree. Whether in heaven or in hell, or in whatever state man may be supposed to exist hereafter, the good and the bad are the only distinctions.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Virtues are acquired through endeavor, Which rests wholly upon yourself. So, to praise others for their virtues Can but encourage one’s own efforts.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “It is a fraud of the Christian system to call the sciences human invention; it is only the application of them that is human.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Is it more probable that nature should go out of her course or that a man should tell a lie? We have never seen, in our time, nature go out of her course. But we have good reason to believe that millions of lies have been told in the same time. It is therefore at least millions to one that the reporter of a miracle tells a lie.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Science is the true theology.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Persecution is not an original feature in any religion; but it is always the strongly marked feature of all religions established by law.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Civil rights are those which appertain to man in right of his being a member of society. Every civil right has for its foundation some natural right pre-existing in the individual, but to the enjoyment of which his individual power is not, in all cases, sufficiently competent. Of this kind are all those which relate to security and protection.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “There are injuries which nature cannot forgive; she would cease to be nature if she did.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Take away from Genesis the belief that Moses was the author, on which only the strange believe that it is the word of God has stood, and there remains nothing of Genesis but an anonymous book of stories, fables, and traditionary or invented absurdities, or of downright lies.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Universal empire is the prerogative of a writer. His concerns are with all mankind, and though he cannot command their obedience,he can assign them their duty. The Republic of Letters is more ancient than monarchy, and of far higher character in the world than the vassal court of Britain.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “If there was ever a just war since the world began, it is this in which America is now engaged.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The abilities of man must fall short on one side or the other, like too scanty a blanket when you are abed. If you pull it upon your shoulders, your feet are left bare; if you thrust it down to your feet, your shoulders are uncovered.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “If anything had or could have a value equal to gold and silver, it would require no tender law; and if it had not that value it ought not to have such a law; and, therefore, all tender laws are tyrannical and unjust and calculated to support fraud and oppression.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “There is existing in man, a mass of sense lying in a dormant state. The construction of government ought to be such as to bring forward, by a quiet and regular operation, all that extent of capacity.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Everything wonderful in appearance has been ascribed to angels, to devils, or to saints. Everything ancient has some legendary tale annexed to it. The common operations of nature have not escaped their practice of corrupting everything.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Government, like dress, is the badge of lost innocence; the palaces of kings are built on the ruins of the bowers of paradise.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “And to read the Bible without horror, we must undo everything that is tender, sympathizing and benevolent in the heart of man.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The people of America are a people of property; almost every man is a freeholder.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “He that rebels against reason is a real rebel, but he that in defence of reason rebels against tyranny has a better title to Defender of the Faith, than George the Third.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “Man cannot make, or invent, or contrive principles; he can only discover them; and he ought to look through the discovery to the Author.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “And this manner of speaking of the Almighty, as one would speak of a man, is consistent with nothing but the stupidity of the Bible.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “When it becomes necessary to do a thing, the whole heart and soul should go into the measure, or not attempt it.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary.”

Thomas Paine Quote: “The more men have to lose, the less willing are they to venture. The rich are in general slaves to fear, and submit to courtly power with the trembling duplicity of a Spaniel.”
Thomas Paine Quote: “The American constitutions were to liberty, what a grammar is to language: they define its parts of speech, and practically construct them into syntax.”
